Trivia and quiz fans in Cornwall are being urged to host a Big Summer Quiz in aid of Marie Curie.

The charity, which supports and cares for those living with terminal illnesses, is encouraging residents to organise a quiz night and increase funds for their critical work.

Marie Curie’s Big Summer Quiz is a fun gathering to test your knowledge alongside your loved ones.

From suggested questions and guidance, Marie Curie provides all the necessary materials to plan your Big Summer Quiz.

These resources can be found on their online platform

The money gathered from hosting a quiz will be directed towards Marie Curie's mission to offer care and support to people suffering from terminal illnesses, including those close to them.

The charity, heavily reliant on fundraising and public donations, encourages locals to generate funds in their unique and creative ways.

In Cornwall, Marie Curie’s team of healthcare professionals provides home-based hospice care, as well as emotional and practical support, either at home, hospitals or over the phone.

The charity also offers a free Information and Support service that extends to anyone with a terminal illness and their loved ones.

This service caters to everyone's needs - from symptom management, daily care, financial guidance to bereavement support.

Marie Curie community fundraiser for Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and The Channel Islands, Lynda Thomas, said: "Whether you’re a maths whiz or a hobby entomologist, put your brain power towards a great cause this summer by hosting or participating in a Big Summer Quiz to help support the crucial work Marie Curie does across the UK.

"Today, one in four people don't get the care and support they need at the end of life.

"Every pound raised is vital to help us improve end of life care and give people the vital emotional and practical help they need."
